Real Madrid find Mauricio Pochettino as the solution in case Zinedine Zidane fails.
Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is in quite a deadlock right now. The abysmal run of form of the defending league champions has pushed him to the edge. As per reports from SPORT, although Florentino Perez believes in Zidane’s abilities; he might have to look at other options shall the situation demand it. Real Madrid have contacted Pochettino to know his availability in case it was necessary.
In the next week, three tough matches await Zidane: Sevilla, Monchengladbach, and Atletico Madrid. Getting knocked out of the Champions League could be the final blow for Zidane’s tenure if it is not backed by encouraging results in the league. The situation with the fanbase is not really great either. The majority of the fans have lost their confidence in him. But the case is not that simple either, Zidane has the backing of the squad and the management. He has pulled them out of such situations before and trusts him to pull this off again.
Los Blancos hope to beat Gladbach and top the Champions League group and regain their pulse in the League against Sevilla and Atletico. but at the same time, they want to reserve Pochettino as a valuable option to the chair. Real Madrid have looked like a team that lacks consistency, goals, and now defensive strength.
Pochettino has the profile they are looking for. A methodical coach, with experience in bigger competitions and, knows how to manage the dressing room. He has openly declared his love for Real in the past when Zidane resigned in 2018.
They have wanted to know if he is available in case of need. The Argentine would take up the challenge with pleasure despite the fact that he will surely not like to arrive to replace a legend loved by Real Madrid.
